Calling all bright sparks!

Wednesday 23rd April
Transport for Buckinghamshire is looking for some fresh new faces to join their street lighting team. Apprentice opportunities are available and successful applicants can expect a bright future in a developing industry.

The team maintains 30,000 street lights across the county, providing a 24hr emergency response cover. Advances in street lighting technology mean that the team is at the forefront of the development and installation of innovative equipment and leads the way with high profile projects such as their LED replacement programme, central management systems and CCTV installations.

The new apprentices will be fully trained and equipped for working safely in a highway environment, taking an active role in a range of street lighting activities including maintenance, installation, electrical and civils work. Through a combination of learning on the job and study, they will have the opportunity to achieve a qualification at Level 3 NVQ in street lighting, providing them with a solid foundation and preparing them for future positions within the industry. The team will help you to learn and develop your skills, confidence and experience with likeminded individuals.

If you are interested in applying, you will need to be educated to GCSE level, holding 5 GCSE’s grades A-C including Maths, English, and Science, be physically fit, able to work at height in an outdoor environment, and be prepared for being challenged and inspired every working day.
